Review by KELLY DOLEJSI

Always wondered what the devil looks like? What fraction of a roasted gopher would be required to completely bed down a man’s appetite? Look no further than your local public library, where “O, Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2000, PG-13) will screen at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, in the upstairs meeting-room “theater.”

Joel and Ethan Coen’s take on Homer’s “Odyssey” reimagines the classic tale as it might have occurred in 1930s Mississippi.

Cinema Cindy Reviews ‘The Boxtrolls’

on September 28, 2014 - 8:26am

By CYNTHIA  Z. BIDDLECOMB

“The Boxtrolls” is marvelous in so many ways. This stop-action (and CG) animated feature takes you to the underground world of a community of trolls who wear boxes for clothing.

Each is named for the product advertised on his or her box. Thus, Fish and Shoe are the main trolls we get to know. And then, of course, there is Eggs.

Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright) is a 10-year-old human boy, thought to have been kidnapped by the boxtrolls as a baby. Stories of how monstrous the trolls are grew out of that misunderstanding.
